September was a funny month and not in the haha sort of way. I had a renewed sense of energy after coming back from a 12 day trip to Boise in August. I did a lot of applications and interviews. But by the end of September, my motivation was waning. It still is, to tell the truth. That’s why it’s taken me this long to get to my monthly adventures post. I’ve been a college graduate since June, but I’m still searching for a job. It isn’t easy. Honestly guys, I could use some encouragement. I know I’m being a whiny baby, but I don’t care. Okay, I do. So I’ll start by being thankful for what I’ve got and what I experienced in September.
I’m thankful for the things that made September good. Things like:
- Admiring the view from Paul’s apartment window
- Eating home cooked food
- Trying all the moles in the sampler platter
- Seeing my baby nephew grow up before my eyes
- Going to a Katy Perry concert with a cool girl
- A few end of summer beach trips
- Celebrating my sister and cousins’ birthdays
- Watching all of Orange is The New Black
This week I’m going back to my college as an alumna twice. That should be funny (also not in a haha way). Today is the Fall Career Fair and this weekend is the Pumpkin Festival.
What are you up to this week or month or whatever?

Oooh I wanted to go to that Katy Perry concert! I’ve been wanting to see her. Keep plugging away at the job search, it’s so great that you have been going on a lot of interviews too. It means people are at least taking notice of what you have to offer! A lot of people never get to the interview point :( Hopefully the career fair goes well, keep us posted! Have a great week :)
Thank you Monique! I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I ended up missing the career fair. It was yesterday and I didn’t feel up to it.
Hang in there! The real world is tough. I always think back longingly to my college days and think about how it was so much easier since things were black and white based on grades and the world seemed to be at your fingertips. I promise that the real world has its own set of wonderful qualities, though. I hope the career fair goes well and that you have a great weekend!
Thank you, Kari! I’ve longed for college again here and there, too. The real world of course has more responsibilities, but it some ways it seems like there is more freedom too. I’m looking forward to both.
